14 Scouting Combine Goal: Invite young men who quit Cub Scouts or never tried it to join a Boy Scout Troop through a dynamic joining activity. Action Steps: Scout units host a Scouting combine in April. At the events use Scouting oriented drills to test their skills and provide them some of the fun that can be found in Scouting. Potential drills need to meet the guide to safe Scouting and should be measurable or timed. 14

15 Possible Activities Fire building - Burn a string at a certain height w/ provided materials, timed *Your Vertical –Have a timed climb at climbing wall *Archery or another shooting sports activity Tent Setup – Measure the time it takes to setup a standard tent 40 Yard Backpacking Dash – Load a backpack *Paddle Race – Paddle a canoe for a specific length in a pool, pond or lake.

16 Scouting Combine Existing Scouts form a two man team with the second member of the team being a Non-Scout. The Coronado Area Council will provide a prize to the winning two man team if at least one new Boy Scout registers at the event. We would encourage the local troop to offer additional prizes. 16

17 Scouting Combine We will award 7 Mini Grants to troops with the best Scouting Combine Promotion Plan for recruiting new Boy Scouts in 2012. 2 $250 Grants, and 5 $100 Grants. Materials and commitment forms are posted to the council website and will be mailed to Scoutmasters, and handed out at roundtables. 17

18 Program Transitions & Retention Once we recruit them, we need to keep them involved. Unit health assessments – Commissioner Team Increased emphasis on attention to dropped youth – District Save-a-Scout program Webelos-to-Scout Transition –Scouting Draft Improve Boy Scout to Venturing transition/partnership 18

19 Scouting Draft Goal: Increase the Number of 5th Graders entering the Boy Scout Program and improve the number of Scouts. Action Steps: Provide a list of all of the eligible 5th graders who are eligible to join a troop to Scoutmasters in their district. Send an invitation to each 5th grader to let them know they are “eligible” 19

20 Scouting Draft Units will take signing day like pictures of Scouts holding Troop Numbers or neckerchiefs with their new Troop Number on it. At April Roundtables a Draft Board will be presented showing those that are still eligible and those that have entered a Troop. 20
